Mircea Ulinic, Cloudflare

Mircea is one of Cloudflare's network engineers, spending most of his time writing code for network automation. Sometimes he likes to talk about the stuff he's working on and how automation really helps to maintain reliable, stable and self-resilient one of the biggest global networks. Previously, he was involved in research and later worked for EPFL in Switzerland and an European service provider based in France. Besides networking, he has a strong passion for radio communications (especially mobile networks), mathematics and physics.
Abstract: It is already well known that Salt is a very powerful and flexible system. At CloudFlare it also proved to be extremely scalable, being able to manage hundreds of servers.
The new feature of Proxy Minions come with many advantages and if used with a proper library to interact with the network device, provides almost unlimited facilities for the network teams to control their equipment.
Beginning with version 2016.3, NAPALM will be integrated in Salt, which means even more flexibility and more ease in configuration than anything else.
